The global outbreak of COVID 19 has had a profound effect on the lives of billions of people around the world. It has changed the way we work, study, travel and even how we have fun and relax. The youth workers and their organizations and institutions haven’t been spared, too. As the lockdown and disease prevention measures were implemented, youth organizations were forced to adapt to a new and rapidly changing reality of working in the time of global pandemic. Almost all project activities, administration and team meetings had to be transferred online in a very short period of time, leaving organizations very little time to adapt to a new way of working.
In order to determine how successful youth organisations have been in transferring their work and activities online CONNECT International has decided to launch a research “Digital Youth Work in the Age of COVID 19”. If you are a youth worker or a member of a youth organisation we are asking you to spare a couple of minutes and help us explore how youth work has adapted to the challenges of COVID 19.
